Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

In 2011 I purchased this 2010 Dodge Charger from a dealer located in paramus NJ. The vehicle was purchased as a certified used vehicle. After about 2 weeks of ownership, I began to notice a slight pull of the steering wheel in the vehicle to the right. I had to maintain constant left pressure on the wheel in order to keep the vehicle traveling straight. I then noticed that when I depressed the break at approximately 60 mph the vehicle violently shook. I also noticed a noisy that was coming from the right front wheel area as if there was a part that was rubbing and would fall off. I immediately contacted the dealer and advised them of the issue. They did set an appointment up for me to address the issue. After taking the vehicle to the dealer they advised me that they found nothing wrong with the suspension and that the vehicle was fine. I took the vehicle and returned it to my garaging area. Later on in the month, I noticed that the same issue was occurring once again and I then decided that I needed to call the dealer again. They told me that there was nothing wrong and looked at the car again. About 2 months later I began noticing the issue once again, only this time to find that there was also an issue with noise coming from the steering column, the noise sounded as a windshield wiper against a dry glass. I decided that I would take the car to my personal mechanic. My mechanic advised me that there was an issue with the tie rod ends and that they were a known problem. He stated that the steering column as well and that they both required replacement. I had the tie rod ends replaced in November of 2012 we are now in 2013 and I am once again being told that the tie rod ends are bad and require replacement. I am constantly forced to maintain left pressure on the steering wheel. This is a problem that needs to be recalled. Please investigate.

While driving my 2010 Dodge Charger R/T I was stopped at stop light. When the light turned green I accelerated, immediately after I started accelerating a noise and clunking feel happened. I maintained a very slow speed because of not knowing what the issue was. I was able to pull into the first parking lot I could easily access. Again not knowing what the issue was but knowing that there was a different physical appearance to the rear of my vehicle and also how it drove while finding a parking location I had the vehicle towed to a trusted mechanic. Once on the lift we were able to see that the rear sub-frame bushings had completely separated from themselves. Being that I was going at a slow rate of speed the situation was kept under control, but had I been going at a higher rate of speed as I often do on my daily commute I am unsure if this would have turned out to be as controlled as it was. The impression my mechanic gave was that this was a catastrophic failure of a part that should not fail at this point of a vehicles life. After the initial assessment of the vehicle I did have it towed to a Chrysler dealership to do their assessment. I have also contact Chrysler multiple times and have been given little to no information on this particular issue other than that the engineers are looking at it. I did do some research and was able to find that other owners of the Dodge Charger, challenger and Chrysler 300 have had similar issues. Most of which were situations where owners replaced the bushings with stronger aftermarket parts prior to failure but it does seem to be a more common concern among owners. I know that I am just one person reporting an issue but my main concern currently is that at a higher rate of speed I do not know if the outcome would have been as controlled, and that is very concerning to me as I do have a family with small children.

While driving I began to experience hearing a knocking noise coming from the right front passenger side of car. This problem was first noted several days after purchasing from dealer. Dealer was notified and advised the problem would be taken care of. Received the vehicle back and no noise. Several months later same noise vehicle was taken back to dealer because along with the noise the tires on vehicle was worn irregularly. The dealer refused to repair issue. Goodyear inspected vehicle and advised that the tires and alignment was severly off. I was advised by Goodyear that vehicle appears to be ok but is known to have suspension issue. Recently I took vehicle for tire rotation and was advised that outer tie rod ends are loose and required immediate repair. This explained my inability to steer effectively and knocking noise which returns.
